Our goal is to educate our patients on what to expect before, during, and after each treatment. Detailed information about specific procedures can be found on their pages, but this page will answer several frequently asked questions.
Ultrasound Cavitation is absolutely safe. While it has only recently been introduced in the U.S., this procedure has been in use all over the world since 2005 and well over 100,000 people have been safely and successfully treated with ultrasonic cavitation in over 50 countries over the past 9 years. Prior to 2011, only the wealthy and celebrities could afford to travel to Europe to use this revolutionary new procedure to maintain and improve their appearance. Since it’s introduction, here in the United States, it is still only offered on a limited basis, due to the high cost and limited availability of the advanced ultrasound cavitation equipment, required for the treatment.
Ultrasound Cavitation is a new, revolutionary fat removal technique that has been used in over 50 countries worldwide and does NOT involve surgery – since it is painless, there is no need for anesthesia, any hospital stay, or time off work. Ultrasound Cavitation causes microscopic air bubbles to surround the lipocyte (fat cell) membranes and with its resonant frequency, the bubbles create high pressure that causes the fat cells to break up instantly. The broken lipocytes are then removed to the liver and safely metabolized out of the body which is assisted by drinking plenty of water. It produces lipolysis of fatty acids from adipocytes (fat-laden cells) due to a phenomenon known as stable cavitation, and increased cell permeability of the adipocytes. You get an increased flow of triglycerides. Furthermore, there is a breakdown of the fibers through mechanical action (jet stream). Finally, some content of adipocytes is metabolized by the liver and eliminated in the urine, so it’s always recommended to increase your hydration both the day of treatment and subsequent days. The procedure works to remove superficial fat and fat accumulation that is non-volumetric. Greater results will be noticed after six to twelve treatments.
Abdomen – Flanks (love handles) – Thighs (saddlebags) – Buttocks – Face (chin and cheeks) Upper arms – Waist (love handles) – Back (bra line) – Thighs (inner and outer) – Hips (saddlebags) – Face (chin and cheeks) – Knees – Arms (back of arms) – Ankles.
Within the first session patients may experience a decrease in measurements. Research has shown that most patients will require 6-12 sessions to achieve optimal results in the designated area. Lastly, the size of the area being treated and the patient’s fitness regimen will greatly impact achieving maximum results.
Ultrasound Cavitation therapy can be safely performed up to 2 times per week, with 3 days between each procedure.
Ultrasound cavitation is the most effective treatment for cellulite and fat reduction. Studies show that traditional liposuction does not treat cellulite. In fact, ordinary liposuction causes existing cellulite to appear more prominent. Ultrasound cavitation treats cellulite directly as well as the accumulation of fat, promoting smoother skin and reducing fat in selected areas. Ultrasound cavitation does not require hospitalization, anesthesia, needles, or any recovery time.
During the first procedure, a thorough consultation of the designated area and several measurements and pictures will be taken. During the treatment course, our licensed technician will explain step by step in detail what the modalities consist of.
Patients who are pregnant, have cancer, heart disease, coronary artery dysfunction of the heart, have arrhythmia’s or irregular heart rhythm, have a pacemaker, or Grade III obesity are not candidates for our treatments.
The results are maintained, especially when combined with exercise and proper nutrition. However, we cannot stop the natural aging that affects your appearance. For this reason, we recommend maintenance visits.
A low calorie diet is recommended and it is necessary to drink at least 1.5 liters of water before and after each treatment in order to eliminate the dissolved fat. Prior to the start of your Ultrasonic Body Contouring Treatments, please avoid eating breads, rice, alcohol and sodas. Massage the treated area to stimulate the dispersion of the contents of the eliminated fat cells. Lastly, spend approximately 30 minutes of mild exercise of your choice to increase your metabolic rate to aid in the elimination of the liquified fat. Ultrasound is a non-invasive method of reducing localized fat using ultrasound and radio frequency, which also has the benefit of skin tightening. The ultrasonic waves vibrate and break up the fat cells, which are then liquefied and eliminated through the lymphatic and urinary system.
Although this method of fat reduction can help to speed up the weight loss process when done in conjunction with diet and exercise. Ultrasound Cavitation is used for body shaping, to reduce those stubborn fatty areas that don’t seem to budge regardless of diet or exercise. It is also used for wrinkle reduction and skin tightening.
Individuals with cardiac and vascular diseases, pacemakers, and women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should avoid this treatment. Your personal physician’s certification may be required with certain individuals.
It is a relatively new non surgical technique that allows the reduction of localized fat, breaking the bonds that form the fat cell, which your body will naturally dispose of.
